Home Run Nickname Derby

As baseball season heats up, thought it might be fun to come up with a new nickname for home runs. Here are my leading contenders:

  1. Humdingers
  2. Long Johns
  3. Creamsicles (Full disclosure, this one’s a bit of a stretch. I love creamsicles and I love home runs. Pretty much the only connection)
  4. Whoa Nellies
  5. ???
  6. Big Ups
  7. Ho-hos
  8. Yonders (originally wanted to go with Beyonders, but worried that Marvel might come after me for unauthorized usage of the Beyonder name, and it wasn’t really the threat of a Marvel lawsuit that gave me pause, so much as the fear (unfounded though it may be) that a lawsuit might in some way delay the development of the Beyonder movie. Not that it’s been announced, but come on. It’s just a matter of time. It’s the Beyonder.)
  9. Spletts (Just kidding!  And yet, not the worst idea. Pretty bad, but not the worst.)
